Under the hood the new Ford Mondeo will feature the higher performance 240 PS 2.0 liter Ford EcoBoost turbo-charged petrol engine. The big drawing point of this engine is that it provides up to 20% better fuel economy and reduces CO2 emissions also by 20% compared to traditional petrol engines around the same capacity.

Also on the list of improvements are some driver assistance features which include: Lane departure warning, Driver alter and Auto high beam. Another new feature added for the first time in the new Ford Mondeo is a Blind-Spot Information System, speed limiter and rear view camera.
